The Many-colored Rush Tyrant is a small species of songbird found across much of southern South America. The colorful little flycatcher comes from a family of rather dull-colored species, making its multicolored plumage even more remarkable.
Many-colored (or -coloured) Rush Tyrants are found in reeded marsh habitats and around wetlands and lakes. They forage by gleaning insects from reeds or stems. They also found prey by running or hopping on the ground or on the wing.
